State Crop Pest Commission lasses Bulletin
Summarizing Results of Cultural
Experiments in the Growing of
Cotton - Valuable Recom
The Louisiana crop pest commission
has issued a very interesting bulletin
giving a detailed account of the cul
tural experiments conducted at differ
ent points throughout the state during
the past year with a view to demon
strating the possibility of alleviating
the ravages of the cotton boll weevil.
The results of the experiments are
summarized as follows:
"In co-operation with the federal
bureau of entomology, the crop pest
commission conducted cultural experi
ments at three points throughout the
state, viz: in the heavily-infested sec
tion at Logansport, in the lightly-in
fested section at Alexandria, and in
the non-infested Mississippi valley at
"The early maturing varieties of
cotton, Triumph, King and cotton from
seed purchased in southern Missouri,
were grown for comparison with native
Louisiana cotton at each of the three
"In the experiments at Logansport,
where th@boll weevils were exception
ally abundant, on good soil, the em
ployment of the cultural method re
sulted in a production of 1155 pounds
of seed cotton per acre in the case of
Triumph, 1027 pounds in the case
of King, and 1006 pounds in the case
of south Missouri, while the native
cotton produced 948 pounds of seed
cotton per acre.
"In the experiments at Alexandria,
on a Red River.valley plantation, with
fewer weevils present, all of the varie
ties yielded in excess of a bale per
acre, Triumph producing upwards of
2200 pounds of seed cotton per acre.
"In the experiments at Batchelor,
Point Coupee parish, on a Mississippi
valley plantation, with no boll weevils
present, Triumph produced 2217, King
1683, south Missouri 1544, native fer
tilized 1596, and native unfertilized
1570 pounds of seel cotton per acre.
"The results point to Triumph as
being the best all-round variety for
use in boll weevil infested sections,
followed closely by King and cotton
grown from northern seed, (south
Missouri or northern Oklahoma).
"Northern grown seed, though pro
ducing an early maturing crop, does
not retain its quality of earliness, and
the seed must be renewed from north
ern points at least every two years.
"The use of 200 to 300 pounds of fer
tilizer containing a high per cent of
available phosphoric acid in most
cases hastens maturity. The increased
yield on the upland soil was sufficient
to pay several hundred per cent profit
on the cost of the fertilizer."
The following recommendations are
"Thorough preparation of the soil.
The land should be well plowed autd if
necessary gone over with the discus
harrow and drag. so that by planting
time it will be loose, friable and at
near like a garden seed bed as possible.
Too mush emphasis cannot be placed
upon the importance of doing this
work early, so that when the "roper
time for planting arrives the later
work can proceed without delay. i'all
and winter plowing should be practiced
far morerthan it is, not only because
winter plowing opens and aerates the
soil, but because it cultivates, and
cultivation breaks up and exposes the
underground cells in which the boll
-worms (not weevils) pass the winter,
resulting in their destruction by the
action of the weather and putting them
on the surface where they can be
picked up by birds. A large part of
the damage with which the boll
weevil has been charged has been done
by the boll worm, hence the import
ance of practicing measures which
will reduce the numbers of both insects.
"Early planting. To produce an,
early maturing crop the seed must bey
planted early. We do not, however,
advocate extreme early planting. Last
year some few planters overdid the
early planting idea and put seed in
the ground at such an early date that
the stand suffered severely from the
cold and frosts. The seed should be
planted so that the plant will be up by
the time most of the danger of frost is
over. It is better to incur a slight
risk of frost injury than to delay plant-.
ing too long, as the boll weevil dam
age to a late planted crop will be much
greater than the loss due to afrost in
juring an early stand.
"Early varieties of cotton. In view
of the past year's experience, Triumph
seems to be slightly preferable to King
or to cotton grown from northern
seed. King still continues to be a
valuable variety for use in the weevil
section, but does not possess any ma
terial advantage over the cotton pro
duced from seed purchased in southern
Missouri or northern Oklahoma. Row
den is being used by many planters
and quite a numier prefer this variety
to King. Parker cotton has given ex
cellent results in Texas, but for some
unknown reason the Louisiana plant
ers seem not to have adopted it."
In regard to the experiments at
Batchelor, in the Mississippi valley,
the bulletin says:
"The type of soil upon which the ex
periments were conducted is charac
teristic of the valley, and for many
years was subjected to overflows prior
to the perfection of the levee system
which now protects it. Indications
point to the weevil doing its maximum
damage when it reaches these rich

Use of Sawlphr iu Maluacturilt
For the time being Louisiana sugar
planters may go ahead with their
plans to dispose of the output of their
factories without fear of the applica
tion of the pure food law to cane
-products manufactured according to
methods now in use. Replying to a
communication from Representative
Robert F. ]roussard requesting a
ruling on this point, Secretary of Ag
riculture James Wilson has announced
that he does not favor applying what
ever conclusions may be reached by
his department concerning the use of
sulphur, etc., in the manufacture of
sugar and molasses, to "the products
from the last crop nor from the crop
that is growing." Continuing, Mr.
Wilson writes: "We cannot come to
a conclusion regarding the use of sul
phur in making sugar and molasses
until we also determine the effect of
this mineral with regard to wines and
fruits. I think it will be some little
time before a conclusion is reached
regarding the whole group. Mean
while, the sugar people should go on
with their business."
In this connection it is gratifying to
note that the cane crop is in better
shape at present than has been the
case for along number of years, and
that the outlook is exceptionally prom
ising. It is, of course, entirely too
early to count positively on anything(
but there is considerable satisfaction
in knowing that the crop has made so
much better a start than usual.
"February, dreaded by our sugar
planters on account of its meteoro
logical capers twice in the past decade,
is now upon us," says the Louisiana
Planter, discussing the situation,`
"and the first week of it has gone by
without inflicting any damage on t
crop prospects. Cold weather has been
experienced, compared to what we have
had as a rule during the rest of the
winter, but the temperature has not
descended low enough to cut down the
stand of cane now visible everywhere
except in some few places on the back
lands, and, of course, even this has
wrought no injury to the crop. Pre
dictions are made in some quarters
that the cane crop will be laid by in
May, but it is a little too early to
prophesy concerning this. That the
outlook is the best within all recent
recollection, however, is generally

Important Trade Mark Decisios.
A decision of importance to all man
ufacturers of trade-mark goods was
recently rendered by Judge Pritchard
in the United States circuit court at
The question involved was whether
the Allen Brothers' Tobacco Co., of
Lynchburg, has the legal right to use
on its '"Traveler" brand of plug to
bacco a tag similar is size, shape,
dolor and slant of lettering, but differ
ent se to wording, from that used by
the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Co., of
Winston-Salem, N. C., on its
k'Schnapps" plug tobacco. Numerous
affidavits were submitted tending to
show that owing to the similarity of
the tags, the "Traveler" tobacco, pur
chased by dealers at a lower price, is
sold to uneducated chewers for
"Schnapps," whereupon Judge Prit
chard decided the suit in favor of the
Reynolds Company and signed a de
cree enjoining the Allen Brothers' To
bacbo Company from manufacturing,
putting 'up, advertising, selling or
offering for sale plug tobacco bearing
a tag identical with or like the said

Paul M. Potts, president of the
Louisiana division of the Southern
Cotton Association, has issued the
following address to the cotton grow
ers of Louisiana:
"The great convention of the South
ern Cotton Association, held at Birm
ingham recently, adopted a resolution
asking the cotton growers of the south
to plant less cotton in 1907 than was
planted in 1906, and also asking that
the land so taken out of cotton be de
voted to corn and other food crops.
"There can be no doubt of the wis
dom of this suggestion. We must
never forget how badly our enemies
punished us for making a big cotton
crop in 1904, and we must not forget
that they are waiting for us to plant
and raise another big cotton crop so
that they can bring all of their power
down upon us and try to starve us
again. We know that if we make a
little less cotton and get twelve cents
for it that there is more money for us
than in making a full crop and selling
it for ten cents 'or less, and can we
afford to take the chances?
"Don't be afraid to raise plenty of
everything that you can consume at
Jome and a little less cotton when you
know it is to your interest to do so. It
will soon be time now to plant an
other cotton crop, and for us to plant
too much means that our enemies will
take every advantage of us and do
their best to buy our cotton at their
own prices next fall.
"If there is no organization of the
Southern Cotton Association in your
parish yut your shoulder to the wheel
and effect one. It is a duty you owe
to yourself as a grower of cotton, and
you can better afford to spend a little
of your time working for the price
than to spend all of your time trying
to raise more cotton and make cheap
cotton by so doing. Use more brain
and less -muscle to get money out of
your cotton crop and you will find
working for the price easier than
working to make a larger crop. People
all over the south are rallying to the
support of the cotton association, and
I predict a bright future for the man
who grows cotton for a living in 1907."
